If.. A Father's Advice To His Son

  1. IfA Father’s Advice to His Son
  2. Letter to the Son by Rudyard Kipling
  3. If you can keep your head when all about youAre losing theirs and blaming it on you,If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,But make allowance for their doubting too;
  4. If you can wait and not be tired from waiting,Or being lied about, dont deal in lies,Or being hated, dont give way to hating,And yet dont look too good, nor talk too wise:
  5. If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;If you can meet with Triumph and DisasterAnd treat those two impostors just the same;
  6. If you can bear to hear the truth youve spokenTwisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,And stoop and build em up with worn-out tools;
  7. If you can make one heap of all your winningsAnd risk it on one turn of pitch- and-toss,And lose, and start again at your beginningsAnd never breathe a word about your loss;
  8. If you can force your heart and nerve and sinewTo serve your turn long after they are gone,And so hold on when there is nothing in youExcept the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
  9. If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,Or walk with Kings - nor loose the common touch,If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,If all men count with you, but none too much;
  10. If you can fill the unforgiving minuteWith sixty seconds worth of distance run:Yours is the Earth and everything thats in it,And - which is more - youll be a Man, my son!
  11. Words are, of course, the mostpowerful drug used by mankind." Rudyard Kipling Music: Secret Garden „Reflection” PPS A..a
